    In Texas,

    1. When a two-week notice is given, is it mandatory for the employer to pay you for those two weeks, regardless of whether or not the employer ALLOWS you to work those two weeks (in other words, will they pay you for your two weeks even if they ask you to leave the day you give the notice)?

    2. Is it allowable for you to ask off one week in advance and have your boss tell you it is okay as long as you make up the hours elsewhere in the week, and then he also ask you to fill out a time-off sheet and turn it into him? My thoughts were that this sort-of defeats the purpose of "time off," if there is actually no time off at all. This would be called "shifting the schedule to accommodate not coming in a day," and not "time off."

    1.) The law does not require that you be paid for your notice time if your employer asks to you leave immediately. Some employers will pay that time; some will not. There is no way for us to tell what your employer will do.

    2.) You've lost me. How does having to fill out a time sheet defeat the purpose?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      A time-off request is what I meant. In other words, I'm going to be deducted the entire day as time off, although I'm going to work 8 hours elsewhere in the week. So I'll work my usual 50, but still have to "take off" Friday because I won't be there. It doesn't seem to make sense to me.

        If you don't come in on a scheduled day, it is perfectly legal and acceptable and common to require that you subsitute a vacation day. The other hours you work that week are irrelevant.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
